Most important thing is to improve our language and know the reason behind each and every sentence we are using.Presently, you have seen many people using half words and expressing a cool dude attitude which absolutely a funny way to present themselves. So, here we are to tell you some common mistakes usually done by the Indian people.

 

1. Using double negative

Since when we try to translate sentences to English from our native language, we end up with two negative words. This is totally the wrong use of words. For example, we say-

“I don’t know nothing”

Here this means that you do not know something, but it is wrong the correct one is

“I don’t know anything.”

 

2. Using wrong tenses

Many of us have the tendency to use wrong tenses while speaking, just say common mistakes using the same verb in a single sentence. For an instance-

“I didn’t play cricket at all.”

Here the in the sentence ‘didn’t’ described with never which is followed by again a V2 form of the verb. The correct form of the sentence is-

“I didn’t play cricket at all.”

 

3. Using two degrees at the same time in one sentence.

Can a bad habit of ours, most of the time we use comparative and superlative degree same time in one sentence. Like-

“Rita sings better than Geeta.”

Here in this sentence, we can see two degrees are used “better”. This is wrong as better in itself tells the quality of the person. So the correct sentence will be-

“Rita sings better than Geeta.”

 

4. Subject and object

It should be noted that ‘I’ and ‘me’ both are subjects, don’t think them as subject and object. We normally confused in between the two as where to use what. Like if we say-

“Mita and I are going to the market”

Hold on, what’s wrong there in this sentence, can you spot the mistake? Yes! If we remove the first two words from the sentence that is ‘Mita and’. The statement will be ‘Me am going to the market’ which is also wrong. ‘I am going to the market’ is a correct sentence.

So you have to write “Mita and I are going to the market.”

5. Yo-Excuse me! What does this mean?

Many of us say ‘Yo’ in place of saying yes. Just tell me what does this word mean? There is no meaning of Yo in English. We use this word to show off cool attitude in front of others.

Instead of saying ‘Yo’ try to use the word ‘Yes’.

 

6. Using ‘s’ unnecessarily in the word

It is the mistake by all of us that we add ‘s’ suffix to the word. Adding ‘s’ without any sense is a foolish thing. Learn the concept of using ‘s’. Basically, it is used with the singular noun or pronoun.

 

7. Do and Does concept

Most of us do this kind of common mistakes in English. Understand the concept of ‘Do’ and ‘Does’, then use it. Here, how you use it-

‘Do’ is used in the singular form of the subjects and ‘Does’ indicates the plural form of the subject.

 

8. Using synonyms of the word near to each other

Another common mistake that we do is to use two words with the same meaning to increase the quality of the sentence. Well, it is stupidity to use them. For example-

“It was a blunder mistake.”

Use either blunder or mistake because both are synonyms for each other. So you can write-“ It was a blunder” or “It was a mistake.”

 

9. Using “Then” and “Than”

There is a big difference between “Then” and “Than”. They both possess different meaning like-

‘Then’ is used to indicate time which is followed by something else.

‘Than’ is used to compare the things. It is used where the comparison is done.
